1/2 Bowl Games: NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst FLORIDA   *#78 OT David Sharpe – 6’6/357   True junior that hasn’t declared yet. Some are saying he’s coming out and if he does, he would have a shot at being one of the top 3 OTs.  Personally, I think he needs to go back to school.  He has two years of starting experience and he is a guy that improves monthly.  But he doesn’t need to be 357 pounds.  It slows him down and he gets beat often on double ...

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst GEORGIA   #73 OT Greg Pyke – 6’6/323   Fifth year senior, three year starter. Has been one of the best SEC linemen over this past three year span.  Very solid all around player that could project inside or outside.  He needs to get stronger before he can be thrown out there in the NFL trenches.  Doesn’t use his lower body enough and his punch is average at best.  He can develop in to a nice, versatile backup ...
